Louisville, Ky.-based Dean Dorton Allen Ford (FY16 net revenue of $25.6 million) has expanded its health care services in Kentucky by acquiring Metro Medical Solutions, a long-standing physician billing and credentialing company located in Louisville.
The new physician billing and credentialing services will be combined with Dean Dorton’s existing health care consulting practice and branded as Dean Dorton Healthcare Solutions.
“We are enthusiastic about the high level of service and expertise Metro Medical Solutions has provided its notable client base and the opportunity to expand services to our current clients, which includes many physician practices,” says David Bundy, president and CEO of Dean Dorton. “Metro Medical Solutions is highly regarded in their ability to maximize reimbursement for physician practices in a short amount of time at a low cost, creating tailored solutions for each client.”
Dean Dorton can now offer a full range of services, from accounting and financial outsourcing to billing and credentialing. “We are now able to handle all back-office functions, which can allow physicians to focus solely on the demands of their clinical practice,” says Adam Shewmaker, director of health care consulting services at Dean Dorton.
January Taylor, president of Metro Medical Solutions, says the merger gives clients a broader range of specialty capabilities, advice and solutions. “In addition, we want to offer more opportunities for our employees and referral partners who are the backbone of our business.”
Dean Dorton Healthcare Solutions includes a team of more than 20 experts who specialize in health care accounting and financial outsourcing, medical billing and credentialing, revenue cycle management, compliance and risk management, technology, human resources and advisory services.
